Set during the Muromachi Period (1333-1568) of
Japan, Mononoke Hime is a story about a mystic fight between the
Animal Gods of the forest and humans.
On the side of the Animal Gods is San (Mononoke
Hime), a human girl raised by the wolf god Moro. On the side of
the humans is Lady Eboshi, building a kingdom for oppressed
people by cutting down the forest for her iron-making operation.
In the middle of this fierce fighting for survival,
Ashitaka, an Emishi boy, struggles to find a way for both sides to
co-exist. But the fighting just becomes more and more bloody and all
hope seems to be lost...
